ICAEW Business Advice Service
Haslers joins innovative advice service
Haslers has joined an innovative service offering small businesses a free initial consultation with a chartered accountant.
The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) Business Advice Service (BAS) aims to help small businesses and start-ups with business and financial advice to spur economic growth.
Small and medium business (SMEs) owners can contact Haslers on a variety of issues, both large and small, and there is no future obligation.
ICAEW’S latest quarterly Business Confidence Monitor (BCM) showed regulatory requirements (36%), access to capital (26%) and late payment from customers (26%) are now greater challenges to companies’ performance than a year ago – all issues that an ICAEW chartered accountant from the firm can help with.
Partner Lawrence Jacobs said: “Start-ups or growing small businesses need the best advice to succeed at a time of fragile recovery and limits on public spending. There is a clear need for expert business advice which helps SMEs and start-up businesses become engines of growth.
“In response, the Business Advice Service will offer SMEs the opportunity to discuss their business with a qualified chartered accountant through a free initial consultation. ICAEW Chartered Accountants at Haslers will be able to offer expert advice on a whole range of issues facing them – from starting a business to turnaround, restructuring, financial management or taxation issues.”
